I woke up super early (for me) this morning and went for an invigorating run at Ft. Toulouse. I felt extra speedy today!
I completed 5 miles in 40:27. My splits looked like this:
Mile 1 – 8:12
Mile 2 – 8:00
Mile 3 – 8:01
Mile 4 – 8:03
Mile 5 – 8:05
By the fifth mile I was worn out! I felt strong today though, and I know I could have gone farther if I had slowed down some. I think I’m in desperate need for a good long run, its been several weeks since I’ve had a legitimate long run.
I needed protein for breakfast so I decided to throw a few things together and make a Green Egg Stirfry Omelet.
I mixed 2 eggs with a big handful of fresh spinach in my blender for the omelet. I stuffed it with leftover tofu stirfry that I’ve been needing to get rid of. Sooo good! I think this is my most favorite breakfast that I’ve had in a long time. You must try it sometime. I buy the huge bags of frozen vegetable stirfry mix at Costco. Its amazing!
I desperately needed to get out of the house today before I head back to work tomorrow night. I decided today would be Mommy & Son Day. In my 101 in 1001 list I said that I would do something extra special with Lincoln once a month by myself, so I thought today would be the perfect chance.
We headed to the Museum of Fine Art to play at the children’s exhibit.
I can’t believe I never knew this place was here. It was great! The children’s exhibit was called Artworks.
Lincoln had a great time making art.
He built towers with foam blocks.
And tried on masks.
I attempted to make some art of my own while we were there.
Lincolns favorite part by far was playing with the racecars on the Talledega painting.
I thought this would be a perfect place to leave an Operation Beautiful note, but I left my Post-Its at home. So I improvised …
Lunch was a huge salad bar from Jason’s Deli.
After lunch we headed to Lincoln’s most favorite place on earth Books-a-Million to play with the choo-choo train. I swear that boy can spot a Books-a-Million from a mile away!
We are finally back home and I’m exhausted! The rest of the day is going to be low key for sure. Hope you are having a great day!
